Are you ready to start your online business? If so, there are a lot of business opportunities with the most popular CMS in the world WordPress. You can make active as well as passive income using WordPress.
Without further ado, here is a list of business ideas that you can pursue using WordPress.
Start Dropshipping Business
One of the easiest and most profitable business ideas to start on WordPress is probably dropshipping as there a lot of people that make a living from it. If you have ever heard of shopify dropshipping and know what it is, you can basically do all the same things in WordPress.
Drop shipping is a business model when you sell products online but do not have a warehouse with the stock. Instead of packing and sending products yourself, you buy them from suppliers or manufacturers and they send products directly to your customers.
Become WordPress Developer
WordPress is one of the most popular content management systems out there. However, it does not mean that everyone using it know how to properly develop it. Also, many people do not have the time to create a website for their businesses. So it is not a miracle that WordPress developers are in high demand.
Also, individual WordPress developers mostly can offer better prices for businesses than developing agencies.
Develop Premium Plugins for WordPress
If you know how to code, you can surely create a paid WordPress plugin. It can be a great passive income idea. It is much easier than WordPress development as you do not need contracts, client meetings, and continual coding.
Plugin developers can run business models more like the one-and-done. You can put plugins on WordPress plugin market as well as Creative Market.
Design Premium WordPress Themes
Maybe you do not like coding so much and you are more of a design person than you can create paid WordPress themes. Keep in mind that this still includes a little bit of coding. Try to create as easy to use the theme as possible and target new users as they mostly want to quickly set up a webpage.
You can sell your created WordPress theme in the native WordPress theme market as well as in third-party markets such as Creative Market and ThemeForest.
Create a Blog
There are hundreds of blogs online already, but you can still start a blog and earn money from it. WordPress was originally created for people who wanted to blog because it was easy to set up and publish new content. If you are passionate about something, why not make it your another income stream.
Also, you later could build up your brand and earn money as a contributor for such sites as Huffington Post or Entrepreneur.
Become a WordPress Consultant
You can earn quite a fortune consulting people on how to do things on WordPress. A lot of people would like to maintain their WordPress sites themselves or even learn WordPress development. You can become one and offer people your services.
There are companies that would like to perceive a professional opinion on their website, you could also consult them and help them improve.
Offer WordPress Website Support and Maintenance Services
Not everyone wants to maintain their websites and not everyone has time for that. Thus, there is also quite a high need of people that would maintain and support other people’s websites.
I believe that you could offer much cheaper services to people than big companies and be more competitive in the market. You could search for such job online or offer your services on Fiverr.
Sell Digital Goods
If you do not want to dropship, you can create a digital goods marketplace. You can sell your graphics work, photos, e-books and much more. However, if you do not have any digital goods to sell which were created by you, you can offer people to list their creations and take a percentage of them.
Become a Content Marketer
Maybe you know some marketing stuff and worked for some PR companies? You can start your Freelance business by offering WordPress websites content marketing services. Offer them to distribute relevant, valuable and consistent content to attract and keep a consistent audience for their website.
Make a Review Website
One of the most popular review websites in the world TripAdvisor brought $1.5 billion in revenue in 2015. So you can take a bit of that industry as well by creating online WordPress review website. It is a competitive industry but if you stay consistent and do not give up early, you can make quite a buck from it. It almost can be a passive income business idea.
